Ingredients

7.05 oz (200 g) penne pasta

14.11 oz (400 g) chicken breast

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 yellow onion

2 garlic cloves

1 red bell pepper

0.35 oz (10 g) fajita spice mix

0.5 chicken bouillon cube

1.06 cups (2.5 dl) cooking cream

salt/pepper

0.25 bundle fresh parsley

 

Directions

  1. Boil pasta according to box instructions.
  2. Find your favorite KUMA kitchen knife and cut onion and garlic to fine pieces. Slice bell pepper into strips.
  3. Slice chicken into strips.
  4. Heat up a pan with some oil or butter to medium heat.
  5. Add garlic and onion to the pan to sauté for a few minutes until soft.
  6. Add chicken and cook it until it has gotten some color on all sides.
  7. Add fajita spice mix.
  8. Add bell pepper.
  9. Crumble in your bouillon cube and add water. Stir well and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes so some of the water vaporizes.

  11. When the pasta is done cooking, move the pasta penne to the pan. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the pasta water to the pan as well.
